There’s no doubt that a quality Kindergarten program lays the foundation for success in learning in school and beyond – it’s the very best start you can give your child.
 
St Francis Xavier Kindergarten is located on the St Francis Xavier school site. The kindergarten is managed and operated by Centacare Child Care Services. They provide a high-quality accredited program, with dedicated staff who deliver a safe, caring and fun educational environment that supports your child’s developmental needs.
 
In Kindy, your child will make new friends, learn new skills and enjoy a world of new experiences, in new purpose-built facilities designed just for them.
 
Your child will develop and refine language, social and motor (physical) skills, through participation in a range of creative play-based activities, including music and art. They will learn basic concepts of literacy and numeracy while they build their confidence and communication skills – so that they will be ready to join ‘the big kids’ in Prep! 

03-child.pngThe Kindy program covers 15 hours per week (or 30 hours per fortnight) in the year prior to entry to Prep.  (That means your child will be at least 4 years old by 30 June in their Kindy year). 
 
Kindy provides an educational and care program:
 
  • with an ethos of Catholic compassion and care for the development of each individual
  • specially designed to care for the developmental needs of children of this age
  • that is aligned with the national Early Years Learning Framework
  • where children learn through-play based activities
  • in an environment (indoor and outdoor) where spaces and materials are accessible to foster children’s choices and independence
  • conducted by a four year-trained specialist early childhood teacher and a qualified assistant.

Families with a child enrolled in Kindy may be able to access federal Child Care benefits (dependent on family income eligibility).
